I wanted to try making something from a few ideas I had floating around in my head.
All I really knew was that I wanted to sew strips of fabric together and to try a ruffle.
There was no pattern which is why it's very wide on M and the straps were way too long (bad measuring on my part) so instead of cutting them I've folded down the extra length and sewn across it so the excess is tucked down into the back of the dress.
Regardless of the flaws, it will be a lovely light dress this coming summer and should she have a growth spurt, there is plenty of room to move in this dress, both ways!!
